MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Jacob Staples’ quest to return to the state tennis tournament may have gotten a boost last week.
Bullitt East lost 4-1 to Manual but Staples recorded a quality victory.
The senior defeated Luke Sheridan-Rabideau 2-6, 7-5, 1-0 (13-11).
Sheridan-Rabideau was the fifth seed in the Sixth Region tennis tournament a year ago.
Bullitt East coach Dustin Armstrong said that once Staples began to go after his opponent’s backhand, things turned in the Chargers’ favor.
